My dreams came true with this funkdy masterwork! I was absolutely fascinated by ANTIBALAS first work "Vol. 1-Liberation Afrobeat".
Praying they keep their good work, I bought their second CD "Talkatif" and I listened to this 9:36-min-song "talkatif" ten times or more...in one day!
This is not only music, this ist spirit, real spirit! this ist real music! this is real soul, real funk, real groove!!! The beats, the bassline, the melodies makes you crying and dancing and praying and hoping and shaking and shaking and shaking!!!! hope to see them live one day... must be like a fist-time-visit with burning spear!!!
this is an absolutely must-have CD for all groove'n'funk-lovers and any real music lover!!!!
Talkatif is a great follow-up album with combustible, head-bobbing, body-shaking tracks that need more airplay (but I guess Clear Channel doesn't share or get the message of Afro-beat). As it is, Antibalas will add groove to any party, and create a party-like atmosphere where there isn't one.
Highly recommended, even though it's a scant 41 minutes; much like many of Fela's recordings on LP, now reissued as double-LP CDs. Don't forget to check out Fela's ZOMBIE.
